    >Better video player
    >No commercial breaks
    >Offline access, forever
    >Plug and play from laptop/ home entertainment setup into dumb TV or screen resulting in never having some moronic Yahoo ran operating system brick your TV in half a decade because they stopped updating the software 3 black Friday cycles ago.

      hi tech illterate. it is because of the settings, x265 is more efficient algo that makes files of the SAME quality much smaller. This doesnt account for people who dont know how to use it or use higher quality settings. x865 has 8, 10 and 12 bit color schemes as well

              Where did I suggest you download 50gb files you mouth breathing donkey. I specifically said it makes smaller file sizes for same quality. Are you an actual moron? Also you can see the color differences or else why would they use it you fricking moron

                And OP's image shows that the exact same movie is twice as big in x265.
                Computer file sizes aren't golf scores, the bigger number is worse.

                I already explained it is because of the settings the person who encoded it used. Yah it is bigger but is using higher quality setting you stupid frick. Actually it using the same settings because the person didnt lower them. But the same settings = much better quality in 265 which is why I said the person using the encoder doesnt understand this most likely. They most likely used the 20 setting for both when they could have lowered the 265 setting to 15 or 10.

    Nobody does. Zoomers stream, boomers stream, most millennials stream. Its that gabe quote about beating piracy by offering a better service, personally I don't think streaming services do offer a better service but normies categorically do and even the nerds who ought to be pirating don't seem to anymore. Piracy as a significant thing will die with millenials, I mean it kinda already has since you never hear companies b***hing about piratebay anymore like you did 15 years ago, so they clearly arent feeling the impact like they once were.

      In Australia they banned piracy websites. Your ISP blocks your connection to them and it shows a message like this. Not only piratebay, your ISP also blocks sites like kisscartoon under the guise of 'the website is unsafe'. People aren't just losing interest there's an active effort to stop piracy

    OG Pirate here, I hung up my captains hat for many years and recently got back into it. It's the most satisfying thing knowing that you have your kino saved- you don't have to rely on bullshit streaming sites or services. Streaming sites have potato tier quality in both audio and video.

    >inb4 poorgay

    I was subbed to multiple streaming sites and many prime video channels, region locks fricked with it and I am not going to dish out on a vpn- just because you have money doesn't mean you should blow it to just watch some movies.

      This. I tried watching planet of the apes on netflix but the quality was abysmal so I just torrented it. They are slowly decreasing the quality and introducing ads so you must pay more to get the same luxuries as before, it's so shit

    For the obvious reasons, but it has to be said that they have remarkably shit taste if picrel gives an accurate image of their preferences.
    Watching and acquiring nu-slop without paying will still cost time that they could have spent on something more worthwhile instead.

      most tvs have a usb ports. but some TVs only mount drives with tiny capacity

      for wireless just buy a tiny pc liek a NUC and connect it to the TV with hdmi

      Yeah there's an app called Plex that does that, you tell it where to look on your HDD and what kind of media it is (movies, tv, music) then it populates a personal streaming app with your files, complete with cover art plot synopsis and IMDB links for actors. So long as your PC is on and the plex server is running you can log on with a roku stick and stream your own stuff.
